Tottenham’s King receives driving ban for speeding offence

Tottenham defender Ledley King has been banned from driving for 56 days after being clocked at more than 100mph in a black Mercedes CL.

The 30 year old of Cuffley, Hertfordshire, had previously admitted speeding on the A14 near Newmarket, Suffolk, in June, and was sentenced when he appeared before magistrates in Sudbury.

He had argued that he had been travelling at no more than 95mph - not the 105mph recorded by a policeman using a laser speed gun.

But at a hearing last month magistrates ruled that the England international had been correctly clocked at 105mph.
